14 var. of ragi were studied for their puffing quality. The puffing yield ranged from 67 to 97%, and bulk vol. from 3.9 to 7.7 ml/g. The effects of moisture content, conditioning time and puffing temp. were studied for fixing optimum conditions, which were 19% moisture content, 4 h conditioning and puffing in sand medium at 270 degree C. No consistent relationship was observed between grain amylose, protein content or bran thickness and puffing quality among the 14 var. Purna, Annapurna, Shakti, P.R.202, and Indaf-3 var. possess good puffing quality.
